    If Statement and Concatenate

    Hello. I have worksheet in which I have data in the A column, data in the B
    column, and (sometimes) in the C column. I'm having trouble with the correct
    formula. I want to put in the D column something that states If "C1" is
    blank then enter A1. And If "C1" is not blank, then concatenate A1 and B1.

    I hope that makes sense and thank you in advance.

    Try a formula like

    =IF(C1="",A1,A1&B1)

    COOK 1 COOK 2 OPEN/CLOSE
    MELISSA JULIA

    I want Open/Close to show Melissa & Julia.
    Cook 1 will always be filled.
    Cook 2 may be blank.
    I know that I need to use concatenate: =CONCATENATE(M8," ",N8).
    My IF is Cook 2 is not blank to add space&space.
